Joining a new organization can be an exciting yet daunting experience, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed. With Johns Hopkins University's vast footprint and vibrant culture, building connections, expanding your network, and establishing a support system can help make the transition a little easier. A monthly networking group for new hires is ready to connect you with peers from different departments, share resources and experiences with one another, and pave the way for future collaborations and growth.

This group is open to new employees with under one year of service at JHU. Sponsored by the Office of Benefits & Worklife, this group provides a forum for peers to connect, collaborate, and grow with others acclimating to Hopkins.

In this group, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with peers. Meet fellow new hires from different departments and backgrounds, fostering a sense of camaraderie and belonging within the organization.
